Hit and run in Worthing leaves man with serious injuries

The Argus: Hit and run in Worthing leaves man with serious injuries Hit and run in Worthing leaves man with serious injuries

A cyclist was knocked off his bike in the early hours of the morning in a hit and run incident which left him requiring hospital treatment to his serious injuries.

The man in his 20s was cycling along Brighton Road in East Worthing at 3.40am on Sunday when he was hit.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “We’re interested to speak to anyone who heard or saw anything around that time in the area of Brighton Road.

“It’s unusual for vehicles to be driving at that time, so they usually tend to stick out.

“Anyone with any information should call 101 quoting Operation Prague.”

The man was taken to Worthing Hospital and his condition is unknown.

Police originally gave his age as among his 40s but this has now been revised as fresh details have arrived.

Really? I know Sussex police don't go out much and this proves it.

There are a lot more cars on the roads than there are cyclists, let me tell you - may I suggest you get out of your nice, warm police stations a bit more often during the night and early hours and you may learn something AND spot some crimes being committed.

Why has the above post been voted down? As get this points out, Brighton road is a main route and if there were police patrolling our main streets in the early hours perhaps they would be in the vicinity and could catch these drivers even before they cause accident's.
